PM calls for private school involvement in state schools

The Prime Minister David Cameron wants private schools, including his old school Eton, to be more involved in the setting up and running of state schools.

Speaking to the BBC's political editor Nick Robinson at one of England's first free schools, he said "anyone who knows about providing a good education and driving up standards is welcome through my door".

He said "choice and competition should not be dirty words in education, they can help drive up standards".
